A mural painted by Jim Stuckey on the side of Gods Activity Building in Leroy commemorates Bill Freeman. Freeman was one of the most successful high school football and track coaches in Kansas history, having racked up eight state titles on the gridiron in Le Roy, Osawatomie and Lawrence, while winning two other state track and field titles at Lawrence. He coached for 35 years before and settling down in Le Roy, where he became a banker and was town mayor.  Freeman died in 2015 following a yearslong battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
